? killer of killer capital is back with us. jeff, have you a very interesting take on this. most people would like to dive into it right now but that may not be what you should be doing. >> that's not the pure angle i'm taking. it is kind of a powerball fool's gold feel. people are rushing in because these companies are coming out with special dividends. watch that "x" date. the stock should drop the special amount of that dividend but i don't think the proper route. people dove in to hewlett-packard. will hurt people in the long run. is there what about the tax structure for the new year and these companies. increasing dividends by in some cases record amounts. >> this year we're seeing more an more people are putting allocation to a dividend stock. you have to be very careful. some people are getting in because of the dividend and not paying attention to volatility. a couple stocks i really like this year, moving into 2013, mostly due to the housing turnout. wells fargo, yielding 2.6%. much better than the 10-year. finally, duke energy, a nice energy company, putting up a nice yield b

carried in 2008. >> walk us through some of the shadings here of an election desk making a call. because pennsylvania is so important, why say that it's too early and yet also say that the president has the lead? >> because you get raw vote coming in that gives you an indication of how the state is going. you have exit polls which give you an indication of how the state is going. the people in our decision desk who are very expert at this, very experienced at this, they require a very high level of confidence by matching the exit polls to what they see in key precincts and the actual vote before they're willing to say we won't get a surprise say a huge vote in the western part, more conservative part of pennsylvania for mitt romney overcoming the lead that president obama would develop in philadelphia and counties around philadelphia. they're going to be absolutely certain at an almost 100% confidence level before they'll call any of those states even if a candidate stakes out an early lead. >> thanks very much. we'll come back to you soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston i

lost loved ones. but in spite of the tragedy, in our own curious way, sandy has given us the opportunity for a boost since the government rebuilt southern florida after hurricane andrew in 1992. a reconstruction so huge, it moved the country's entire gdp needle just when we needed it, after right a nasty recession. and now that we've assessed the damage, or we're trying to at least, i'll have to tell you one thing. i think this looks like a possible replay of that hugely bullish. right after a nastier recession. you couldn't tell that today to. ford with terrific numbers because they're connecting with the building materials industry. those stocks performed best today with the ones that took matters into their own hands. we spoke to queen harbors after it bought safety queen. to diversify away from the oil and gas business. queen harbors may have been up huge anyway, simply because, well, it's queens harbors. precisely what sandy ordered. buyers love the acquisition. $8.91. 18% gain for the good guys. tonight we're going to speak with two other companies that want to make
've written -- you've tried, you've tried hard, your other book was hcapitalism will save us if we let it. why flee markets are moral. and big government isn't. you sat down and said i guess the battle will continue because this last election no one read those books, i guess. they must have, but not enough people obviously. you didn't give them away. maybe that's why. but the one thing that -- >> i offered it to the romney camp, but they didn't take it. >> we tried to get romney on here a bunch of times. don't get me started on people that ran that campaign for him. but you were looking for one silver lining when you sat down and all you could come up with was that there are some governors that might not implement the exchanges for obamacare. is that the one thing you're positive about this morning in. >> short term we'll have a lot of turbulence and no small part because the federal reserve is still out to trash the dollar. europe, all the european countries are raising taxes. japan's raising taxes. we're going to raise taxes. just a matter of how much. so we'll have rough sledding next year.
that the u.s. matters. but let me use this rally today to help you understand the world of expectations. not reality. not reality at all. but expectations. >> house of pleasure. >> and how do expectations matter so much more than what has already happened? we're in the midst of earnings season. the bulk of technology reports are already reported. the first was that the united states was holding its own. maybe getting a little better. power behind consumer spend. the fiscal cliff looming but still the positive. second is that europe's a disaster and the most important thing you can do is distance yourself from the continent. ask companies like alcoa and ford. the third, that china had become a big disappointment. yeah, china. and it wupt going to turn around any time soon. certainly not in time to help 2012. this came from a decline in orders. they all articulated as such on a recent conference call. companies that have been optimistic that china was about to turn, that the growth was about to kick in collectively seemed to give up all at once on the clos sus. nobody had been more upbeat
all session. dow closing flat. nasdaq down slightly. but that doesn't stop us from looking for ideas on "mad money." yes, we have an entirely man made crisis. one that could not only cause a huge firings and curtail retail spending dramatically, but it's also driving people out of a stock market where individual companies are giving you positives that would normally provide a tremendous backdrop to a higher market. you know there was a time when some good news over multiple sectors would produce a bountiful bull. yes, good enough things occurred with individual companies that the sum total would produce overall gains in many stocks. we used to call this pin action. now we get nothing. no spillover. the 1 pin gets knocked down. and nothing else falls with it. let me just go over some of the good news, some of the nabbing down 1 pins just today that are being obscured by this darn cliff walk. let me show you what you might have missed and will continue to miss until president obama convenes all the leaders of congress and sends them to camp david to hammer out an agreement in time for
